Posted on 03/25/2012 9:28:16 PM PDT by EnglishCon
US President Barack Obama says he is pushing for "a world without nuclear weapons", making direct appeals to North Korea and Iran.
He also pledged to work with Russia and China, speaking ahead of a summit in Seoul aimed at reducing the risk of nuclear terrorism.
He emphasised the US's unique position to seek change but said "serious sustained global effort" was needed.
The meeting is being attended by representatives from some 50 countries.

Note "He also spoke, he said, as a father who did not want to see his daughters growing up in a world with nuclear threats, a comment which drew applause from his student audience."
Using his kids as a tool yet again.
Didn’t President Carter do this with Amy?
Except for the Caliphate.
Something’s working. It must be stopped. You could’nt write our world.
They are probably more safe in arsenals around the world than being parted out and getting weapons grade material smuggled around.
Nuclear weapons on planet Earth are a fact of life...now and for as long as there are ‘intelligent’ life forms here. They will NEVER go away.
That being said, Obozo is either dangerously naive and completely ignorant, or he inadvertently vocalized his true belief that the US should be disarmed. Either or.
He must be into the blow again. What a moron.
He doesn’t want his daughters punished with a baby either.
The guy has the worst bs. Telepromter must have been on the fritz.
North Koerans ready to bank that deal. Deliver the benjamins Omullah. See? No nukes. Not till next month anyway.
What a suprise... The Marxist usurper wants to give up our nuclear weapons to make North Korea and Iran happy. That will surely make the world a safer place.
What a total fool. He actually believes Iran and N Korea can be trusted.
Using your kids as part of election strategy is something I find particularly offensive, since there is a strong tradition against even mentioning the children of politicians here until they reach adulthood. Or do something incredibly boneheaded, like getting caught drinking under age.
Obama mulls unilateral disarmament of strategic nukes
Obamas unilateral disarmament: White House drive for nuclear zero imperils the world
Translation: Obama emphasised HIS unique position to seek change...but said serious sustained global effort was needed....to position Him as the world leader.
Obama's going for the gold now folks!...and with it he may very well usher in world war 3.
Better said..Does he think they would even begin to trust him? They shouldn't or they are the fools.
Well, he is really an idiot and a dreamer. India and Pakistan will have to have seats at the table along with China and North Korea.
I hope and pray that it is so.
Mentioned before that a couple of my kids are seriously thinking of emigrating to the US. I’d sort of like to have something for them to run to, rather than running from the mess this country is becoming.
The only nukes Obozo intends to rid the world of are the ones we have. He is the worst enemy the US has ever had.
Well we have to look at this from Obamas desire to have office on the world stage...he's also campaigning for that...and there are some leaders who have already been lining him up for something, though it escapes me at the moment. Read it awhile back.
the world without nukes? no. he only cares about the US being without nukes.
0failure and his ideologues are strapping the American people face down to the edge of the gurney...
that cold clammy feeling you have is the KY being applied.
you know what comes next... right?
Frankly, I see nothing wrong with that particular statement. I don’t want to see kids growing up in a world with nuclear threats either.
The problem of course is that states like North Korea and Iran absolutely can’t be trusted. In fact, none but the western democracies and Israel, and maybe Japan and South Korea can be trusted, and those not terribly far.
But if an absolute no-cheat system can be set up to get rid of nuclear weapons, that would be a good thing. Extremely, extremely difficult. But I’m not prepared to say that it’s necessarily impossible. And if it could reasonably be done, it would be a very good thing.
